Waking Up with Three Unexplained Scratches on My Body

Updated on July 12, 2015

Team Wiseman has noticed that strange scratches in certain formations have appeared around the world and were the first to expose it!

This is something that happens all the time, but is rarely discussed. Thanks to the Internet, though, people who observe unusual occurrences, like waking up with three scratches somewhere on their bodies, are starting to talk to each other. And there are a lot of us, and we know the same thing is happening to all of us.

When I say it like that, it sounds crazy, right? Sure it does. It sounds crazy to me, even, and I'm the one writing about the phenomenon of unexplainable scratches appearing on human flesh.

"What does it mean?"

"Why is it happening?"

"Who else is it happening to?"

"Am I crazy, or is this real?"

"What can I do to stop this?"

These are the kinds of questions we are asking.

What are these mysterious scratches on my body?

What Do Unexplained Scratches Mean?

My research shows that these scratches usually come in threes, and appear on the back, arms, legs, and face. Along with scratches, people also experience mysterious bite marks and inexplicable bruising. They seem to appear at times in our lives when temptation is near or when we're facing a big decision.

These scratches have a distinct meaning: "destruction" or "destroy." Rather than going on and on, I'm going to share testimony from others who have been affected by strange scratches. You'll notice that this phenomenon doesn't restrict itself to one country, but rather has afflicted many around the world! You are not crazy, nor are you alone.

Most Recent Poll

Several months ago, I administered a poll about unexplained scratches and the response was fascinting.

Question: Have you ever experienced unexplained scratches, bruises, or bite marks?

  • 97% Yes
  • 3% No

These results are out of the 1047 people who voted, and this is just the beginning. Thousands of victims have turned to the Internet, searching for answers about the three unexplainable scratches appearing on their body, and I'm here to give you answers. Though other sites have tried to help, they all fall short of the Truth.

Personal Stories About Unexplained Scratches

These are real comments left by readers who have experiences scratches and other mysterious events:

"...I found this site via a search on paranormal scratches. I'm the victim of this phenomenon. This has been happening to me for the last 6 years. At first I thought it was just something odd or that maybe one of my cats scratched me and I didn't remember. I actually watched them form one night and had witnesses to the event. They were raised like welts and turned bloody. After about 3 days they completely disappeared. I've had them in places I can't reach which rules out self-infliction. I've had them on my face, neck, arms, legs, and back. Over the years I've almost gotten used to them. I was told that it might be a ghost in my house, but when I moved it kept happening. Also other people that have been close to me have been affected as well. I know this is bizarre and doesn't fit the norm, so I'm here in search of answers. I've been advised by someone who tried to help me that it may in fact be my own psychic doing. Let me explain. We all have a personal spiritual energy and there's a lot about the human mind we are only starting to understand. It's been suggested that I have certain powers or gifts that are making this happen. This power comes at a price, though. It's painful and has affected others I know. The bloody scratch marks eventually heal and disappear but nonetheless it's scary. I'm not saying that I'm some kind of warlock or anything like that. The reality is I don't know what's going on or how to deal with this. I could use some help. So I've chose the grassroots method and decided to find others like me. The person I'm currently talking to has been very helpful, but she is only one source of information. I would like to hear from others. Thanks."


"I wake up sometimes and I have scratches on my upper body, on the front and back of my right shoulder blade, and on my stomach on the right side. I don't inflict them on myself and I also do not have any animals. What do you think they are coming from?"


"On way too many occasions I have woken up with bad bruises on my body. I know that at work I often bump my arms and legs into things, but these bruises are on my torso. Unless someone pinched me or hit me, I can not figure out where I got them. On several occasions my husband has noticed bruising on my back and scratching on my back as if someone had just scratched me. They are not bleeding, but they are fresh. I have had dealings in the past with paranormal experiences where I have been pushed down a flight of stairs, or punched in the back. I call to the power of the Lord, Jesus Christ to rid me of these attacks. It usually works. But, the Devil just does not like to let go."


"The scratches, if not self-inflicted, are definitely demonic. There have been thousands of these afflictions in the past and 90% have demonic origin.

There is Biblical evidence of this, and it can be overcome. But don't go to a Catholic priest for prayer; they will just tie you up in religious jargon. Call a reputable evangelist."


"I am having these issues right now.

Yesterday I awoke with a large bruise on my forearm in the shape of a toothless human bite. The surrounding area is swollen, and I had 2 other people besides myself look for bug/spider bites(NONE)!

Today I have three scratches on the other forearm that became welt-like and burn. They are wider than cat scratches. Two of the scratches run straight up and down the forearm and the third sort of curves towards the other two. They are all about two to two-and-a-half inches long. I don't smoke dope (speed, meth, whatever you want to call it) or crack, no alcohol, no over-the-counter pills."


"I was awoken around 2:24am when my three-year-old son came running into my room screaming, "Get it away from me, get it away from me!" I opened my eyes as he climbed in bed between me and my wife. It was still dark in the room. I looked towards the foot of the bed. With GOD as my witness, clear as day, I saw a green face. I saw his eyes, nose, and mouth. His head was at the foot of the bed as if he was resting his chin on the bed. I screamed as loud as I could and reached for the light. By this time I was standing on my pillow against the headboard... The face disappeared when I turned the light on. I turned every light on in my home and searched every closet, under every bed, every square inch. I found nothing!

We live in a township called Huron believed to have been built on Indian burial grounds. I've been in the garage working underneath the car and have heard someone come in the door and close it and nobody was there at all. We have heard loud banging from the outside which shakes the house: not one or two bangs but six or seven in a row. Once I called the police and they searched the outer grounds. At the time there was four inches of snow on the ground and no one found a single footprint where the banging came from. I have since moved out of that house and my father continues to live there. He had three scratches on him last week. He also said he saw the green face in his room. I built a home on three acres on property right next door. Nothing has happened in my new home as we had it blessed. But my father says he hears a man talking almost every night. He has woken to the sound of water running and has had to shut it off. When he got sick and had to go to the hospital for surgery he was gone for seven days. I let his dogs out every day and fed them and spent time with them. THEY BOTH DIED for no reason the night before my dad was released from the hospital. The vet has no clue what they died from. They were both only four years old. I believe a demonic evil within the home murdered my dad's dogs.

Every thing I have said is true and not a stunt.

On the brighter side of things, my mom, who divorced my father 30 years ago lives in Arizona. She feeds these wild birds every day in her back yard by a stucco wall. The other day she noticed a face on the wall that looks to me like Jesus."


"I have had unexplained scratches, strange bruises, and possible burn marks. I have also had very fine, laser-straight parallel scratches under my right eye which disappeared within hours. I live in a clean house with no pets and shower every day. I'm not religious. All the marks clear up within a few days and do not hurt. I do dream about large demonic looking creatures (tall with gladiator-like human bodies and vile dog-like heads), but in the dreams I'm not afraid and find myself to be stronger and quicker and fend them off very easily. According to my partner I'm a heavy sleeper and a right git to wake up so I don't think the marks are self-inflicted. Some are right in the middle of my back where I couldn't reach. Maybe they're psychosomatic."


"I get these scratches when I'm awake..."


My brother Guy, my best friend Mindy, and me (Chrissy) were in my room the other day. We sat in a circle in the dark and held hands. Each of us said the words, 'On the first day of school I fell off my bike and got a scratch,' and so on seven times. We turned the lights on and checked our backs. Mindy had SEVEN red scratches lined up on her back. There was one scratch on my neck, two scratches on my right arm, and four on my left arm. My brother only had small ones. We took pictures of Mindy's. Mindy and I have scratches all over our bodies. One of Mindy's scratches left a scab. The one on my neck is very deep, deep enough to leave a rash. We don't have a very good relationship with Jesus Christ, so I don't know what to do...but I wear a cross. It helps me when I'm scared for some reason. I have a really bad feeling about this. Help. I have had weird experiences with these type of things before, such as screaming on my camera when I was making a video and nobody was at my house but me. And I've seen weird things in Mindy's room but i won't get into details because nobody believes me. I don't know what to do and I'm scared to be alone in my room."

How Can I Explain These Mysterious Scratches on My Body?

For several years, my family and I have experienced three scratches appearing mysteriously onto our bodies. During those afflicted years we were disregarding God and all He stood for. We were living for ourselves, using drugs, and living the "rock star" lifestyle.

While the scratches on their own were weird, what drove our suspicion was the fact that they appeared in patterns. Sometimes there were three cat-like scratch marks, just deep enough to see red, but not deep enough to draw blood. Sometimes there was one horizontal line with two vertical lines crossing the center. They would always burn then totally disappear a short time later, only to appear somewhere else on my body.

These were times drowned in confusion and chaos, so much so that the atmosphere seemed to get foggy or hazy. As these scratches appeared more and more, things became clearer. These mysterious scratches had a meaning, a purpose. They were meant to cause chaos, confusion and ultimately destroy us. In a nutshell: demons placed these marks on our bodies.

Unexplained Scratches Caused by Demons

I know, I know. It sounds crazy, and I agree. It is pretty amazing what really happens behind the scenes of humanity's existence. My family and I have been told that we are crazy too, but we know the truth. All we did was experience a phenomenon, and have decided to share our experience with others experiencing the same thing. Little did we know, it was happening to millions around the world!

The three parallel scratches are a symbol that means "Destroy." The target that is to be destroyed is us. God tells us that the devils go to and fro, seeking whom they may devour. The only answer to stopping is total surrender to Jesus Christ. How do we know? We called to Him, and even though we disregarded His ways, He answered. After several months of making the right decisions in life and becoming more aware and obedient to God's moral laws, we were set free! We are living proof that Jesus Christ is our helper and our Savior!

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: [1 Peter 5:8]

      I recently woke up with three, small scratches (that are now scabs) on my right leg. I own a kitten, but he can't open the door into my room yet, and I close it every night. The scabs are very red, like bloody so they are probably new. I am very scared. I live with 6 other people and nobody else has been experiencing this. I have also previously woken up with random bruises, that I don't remember having. Please help?

      A few days ago I woke up with a semi circled shaped scratch on my stomach, I didn’t think anything of it but then I realised my cats where at another house... the following few mornings I’ve kept waking up with scratches all over my body, neck was a long line, my right leg, both curved and my foot, (I wear socks to bed) so I’m freaking out, they’re all deep enough to show red, but I don’t think any have bled. It’s really creeping me out due to a paranormal experience a few nights ago that my parents had.

      So I didn’t notice the scratches until later in the day in spanish class and they’re not 3 marks it’s a bunch of little scratches on the backside of my hand. My hand started to itch while in spanish class and i looked down at my hand to these tiny scars. I know it wasn’t me because i barely even have nails and they’re definitely not sharp. Can someone explain this? thanks.

      Hello, When I woke up this morning, a strange circle-like scratch appeared on my back. The weird thing was, it was directly on the middle of my spine. Perfectly. Right on the joint of my spine. I have no explanation for this, and even searched up some info. I'm probably over-worried but my friends are concerned a bit. Just putting this out there

      I am also searching for answer.I found two scratches on my left arm, one on my upper left arm and one on my lower left arm. I do I did not scratch my arms at work and with all the winter stuff I am wearing to keep work is no way something external can scratch me without damaging the stuff I was wearing. interestingly, both scratches are about 3 04 4 inches a part, but they are inline and seem to me following the same blood vain. 3 days now and it seem to be healing.

      I've had paranormal experiences in my past mostly happening at my grandmothers house. I was scared one night and went to sleep in her bed one night. I was awakened by something i looked up from my pillow to see a creature jump over her and scare me. It kind of looked like a gremlin. I'm 31 now and this happened almost 20 years ago i still have this memory. Now having said that, within the past 10 years I've had random scratches show up on my abdomen once in awhile always 3 no more no less. I am not suicidal and do not put myself in situations in which i can inflict harm to myself. In the past couple weeks I've been having a tough time with my emotions been stressed out from the holidays and in a fit of sadness i did say out loud that i wanted to kill myself in front of my fiance. Since then, I've gone to bed and woken up in the living room which is a side effect of sleep drunkeness and also have seen three scratches on my collar and abdomen just recently today. I'm very nervous about what is going on and could use some feedback and/or suggestions on how to deal with this.

      I've noticed that in the past year I've had small but visible scratches on my upper chest close to shoulder and on my torso sometimes on my thighs. I don't have long nails and when they do grow I cut them up because they snag on my clothes and end up getting jagged. Its rarely in 3s its usually one long scratch they aren't painful nor do they burn but I find it strange.

      Hi. I'm a male born in Portugal. I lived in England some time and came back to my country 4 years ago. When I turned 18 some strange things started to happen with me. I'm now 28. I began to hear voices after a strange incident with my cousin. I prefer not to talk about the incident so I'll move on to what is happening ever since. The way I hear these voices is weird. Is like they are inside my head. Like communication using thoughts. I usually reply to them in my thoughts as well and they can hear me because they reply. I don't remember hearing voices when I was a kid. Other weird thing is that sometimes my body moves and I'm not doing it. Like for an instance my hands and arms. It's like they are being controlled. I learned to live with this and to be honest I wouldn't see myself living without it anymore (hearing voices). It's like a part of me now. But I really would like to know why this started to happen. I tried asking these voices but I get different answers so I really don't know. I'm also careful when speaking with them because I know some of them do not have good intentions. I don't know who or what they are. Moving on. Several years ago, in England, I started to have weird dreams. I could write a lot about the dreams but I'll resume. Most of the dreams are about me leaving earth and meeting with blueish beings( I remember seeing earth in the distance); global catastrophes; Going to a spaceship and meeting greenish man (they look like man but it looks like they have scale or something). The dreams started in England, London 2012. I started to have dreams where I know I'm dreaming and I can make decisions. I must say that this sensation is very good. After falling asleep I also started to see my body in bed and then I could go anywhere. One day, 2013 Portugal, I had this dream that I remember very clearly. I saw my body in bed and it was very dark in the house. I heard noises coming from outside, in the building. I went out and went to the stairs (I was living on the 6th floor) to see what was causing the noise downstairs. I saw a grey bald man swallowing a baby. He sensed my presence, looked at me and I ran, of course, fearing that he would come for me. I woke up right after entering the house. Nowadays, right before falling asleep, I can hear a male voice but different from the others. Is strong, deep. I get chills when I hear this voice. He has asked me if I can hear him well. Just that for now. I ask him who he is but I get no reply and then I fall asleep little after. The voices started 10 years ago but from time to time I also see figures and shapes, some are dark others are like a ball of light that passes very fast. Sometimes I also see faces of people I never saw before when I close my eyes. Last year I was affected by this weird anxiety problem. I started to take pills (xanax and victan) to control it. I'm now free from pills but last year was very bad for me. I was depressed and some weird things started to happen. I felt like someone was hitting me but I couldn't see them. This passed. I'm now living alone again (last time was in Englad 2011-2013) and I'm having weird dreams and hearing this deep voice ever since I rented this new apartment. Before hearing the voice I hear a weird sound. Is like a endless ''biiiiiiiiiiiii'' that fades. Today I woke up with a mark on my chest. A little wound, heart-shaped. It does not hurt but I would like to know how it got here. I don't remember dreaming today, which is weird as I always remember at least something. Any of you experiencing things like this? I don't read much and I work a lot but I searched for strange marks on body when I saw my wound and got here. I'm not religious, I don't believe in a God that created all things. I do believe in energies. I'll try to decipher what this new deep voice wants. All the best

      I've been so confused about these scratches that mysteriously appear mostly on my back. The scratches, usually appearing three at a time, and 1 to 2 inches long, form scabs and that's when I discover them. It's bewildering and startling when these things show up out of nowhere. Prior to them appearing, and usually on the same day I actually feel a negative presence trying to get at me, like "scratching" to get inside and I feel very annoyed and agitated. I always stop and pray and ask Jesus to bind the bad spirit and protect me and my house and family. This has been happening for over two years when I moved to Arizona. Thanks for sharing; now I know I'm not going kookoo!

      I just one day noticed 3 straight scratches on my back, they're a finger length long and look like a big animal like a bear scratched me... They look like they have only just happened or only just started healing as they are red and are raised off my skin as skratches do.. it doesn't appear that they are going to heal any time soon...or ever

      It makes me concerned to read that "finding Jesus" was the only way to stop this strange occurrence as I am atheist and not matter how much I want to, I simply can not make myself believe in a higher power

All of a sudden my armpit area started to itch and look and found these markings that have hives and itching bumbs raised where the scratch marks are. It's a burning itching feeling and too thin to be by my nails and tried to scratch my self to compare and wasn't the same look at all.

      I argued with my family last night and when veeything settled down I went to sleep and woke up this morning and had my breakfast and (as any Norma person does) went to the toilet when I noticed there was a burning sensation on my upper leg nearest my bum cheek so I had a look and I had 3 scratches that were red raw but weren't bleeding. I have a dog but he was down stairs all night and all the doors were closed. I don't want to say anything to my parents coz they will think I'm crazy but I really think something paranormal has happened to me. Every since we moved to this new house (just over a year ago) I knew something wasn't 100% right like at night I'd hear creaky floor boards that only ever creaked when you stepped on them!! I'm really scared and would love and explaination

I wanted to know what it meant but my friends started acting strange around me such as: looking behind me, mumbling, or ripping bits of their skin on their hands off.

      My opinion: Demons are real! That also makes Christ real. Seriously if You are having problems in any way ,Prayer to Christ can fix anything! If You dont know how to pray literally out loud say, yell depending on your mood. Ask that The Holy Spirit to protect you. Remember the devil cant read your thoughts. CHRIST CAN. So if you want a demon to leave you alone you must with an assertive voice out loud say "Demon by the POWER OF JESUS CHRIST, AND THE HOLY SPIRIT I COMMAND YOU TO LEAVE MY HOME, YOU HAVE NO POWER THAT COMPARES TO THE HOLY SPIRIT. " NOTHING IN THIS WORLD HAS POWER LIKE CHRIST, AND THE HOLY SPIRIT IS CHRIST'S ENFORCER. Give your heart and soul to Christ . Remember hell was not created for humans. Christ want s you to be in heaven , He loves You far beyond our ability to understand.

      When I was about two years old I started talking to things my parents thought it was and imaginary friend but soon figured out it was the old man that was murdered in my room the year I was born. After a while it was fine I just thought that maybe I was special so I went on with my life and after 12 years of this we moved to New Zealand and I started to become negative and aggressive and really angry and I felt like I was a possessed demon and now I can't sleep because it feels like someone or something is watching me, touching me, breathing on me. And a week ago a demon appeared to me in my sleep he told me to scream and for some reason I did. I would clean up my room than the next morning it is a mess. And I would wake up with 6 not 3, but 6 scratches on my arm that feels like I am being branded. I can't talk to my parents cause they don't understand, this is freaking me out and I don't know what to do I need answers Please.

      I woke up this morning and when into the bathroom when I saw red on my back and I turned around to see in the mirror and I have 3 scratch marks running on my back, I had very sexually active dreams last night. I read up on it and it says that the demons love to give sexual pleasure but implant a seed to commit bad sin and turning your faith away from God. It will choke, make you not able to move during sleep, leave scratches, bite marks and many more demonic symbols! Becareful and get right with God; repent and get on the right path you should be on. God bless

      ghosts can manipulate themselves using energy, devils won't do that, they possess direct into objects or human and animal body, specially when their spirit weakeness, because fear or having a hard time ( with family , job ) that way they don't lose energy like ghosts, but they use that body energy or objects, when the energy run out, they will leave the body or objects and find new one, 3 scratches may cause someone fear enough to possessed ( English is not my mother tongue), often ghosts can't do anything harmful, they just appear, send messages, or warning, but using energy from environment is hard to keep that form for long time unless they stand near electric sources, devils use their own energy to scare someone off, and they possess and use his/her energy, stored for the next victim, cause them fear and steal their energy again, pay a little energy to get full energy source, sound good?

      So this morning I woke up & I turned my back in the mirror & noticed that I have a D shaped on my left shoulder. I mean it's plane as day the letter D. It almost looks like a birth mark or even a bite mark. But I've never had it before. It just showed up last night in the middle of nowhere. I don't understand where it could have came from. Also, I constantly have these weird dreams but I'm awake. So there was this one time I had my baby in the bed with me nursing & we both fell asleep. Well I heard these really loud footsteps in my living room so I tried to wake up but I couldn't so Ik in my sleep I sat up & looked & there was nothing. So I laied back down.( Keep in mind I'm still asleep) well it happens agian & this time I tried to move my head because I feel something standing over me but I can't move my head because it's so stiff as if someone is holding it in place. I finally woke myself up & moved it & there was nothing there. This isn't the only time this has happened. This same exact thing happened to me a few months ago except I was pregnant probably 30 weeks & I had the same dream only execept I had some girl trying to wake me up. She was pushing on my belly trying to wake me up she had long strawberry blonde hair and she was in her 20s maybe. So weird I have these dreams sometimes where I think I'm awake but I'm not in asleep. These only happen when I hear things or see them. I always told my hubby about them but I think he thought I was crazy until one day I laied down for a nap & he was in the living room & out bedroom door shut firmly it didn't slam tho. So he came into the room thinking I shut it but he found me asleep & he was trying to wake me & all I did while I'm still sleeping was sit up in bed & point towards the door that just shut in it's own. So crazy right. I wish I had answers as to why these things happen to me as well as my unexplained Letter D & random bruises

      I have experienced four attacks where I have been attacked by demonic entries. The first time I was reading my Bible and suddenly felt as if a spider had bit me on the back of my leg. I jumped up went into bathroom to see and I had three scratches on the backside of leg. They were so deep and burned as if I had been using a razor. These scratches stayed on my leg for over a month, they became infected and daily I put antibiotic ointment. They welped up and we're present for almost a month. My son was attacked so brutally that he has scars. He was 14 yrs old when he was attacked so viciously he came down the stairs screaming and hollering when he turned around he had over 20 gaping gashes bleeding down his back. To this day every time he takes off his shirt I am reminded of the brutal attack as he has 20 scars still present to this day from the attack. There is no question in my mind that these occurrences happen. Usually it happens to people who have a high calling on their life. The devil only attacks who he thinks will threaten him. So on the positive side of this if you have been a victim of this type of attack you have gifts you don't even know you have and you have a high calling on your life from God. Why would the devil ever attack something that is no use to him. So on that note you can say there is some type of positive outlook on this very negative occurrence in that the person or victim whom or attacked are usually the ones whose light shines the brightest in the spiritual Realm. If you want to end these attacks put Jesus first and foremost in your life and begin your calling for the purpose in which you have on this Earth. Take this negative and turn it into the positive and give GOD THE GLORY, not the devil. Peace Love and Happiness to all of you whom have been victimized buy these type of attacks

      Today was the third time that I have had two-line scratches on my body. Middle of the day, nothing particular going on, burning sensation and then the two lines. This is over a month or so. In each location of the two-line scratches, they are still visible as red lines. I don't actual feel it's negative but someone in the spirit world trying to get help from me. I keep saying I can't help but I keep getting scratched. So - where are the answers to all of these comments below? Anyone? It's not a demon so please don't start off with that.

      My husband and I are Christians but we have not been as close to our Lord as we should. We have undergone attacks in the past. I was severely attacked health wise and suffered horrific pain that pain medication could not help. My son heard a voice call his name and my husband heard what he thought was me screaming in pain. When be went to check I was sound asleep. My husband was also fired at this crucial time from a company of 16yrs. We know this was a demonic attack. We asked for prayer and deliverance. We pulled ourselves tight to Jesus. After 6 months of utter physical hell I was delivered. My husband found a new job much later on. But our 401 was completely wiped. It has been several years since then and life has been good but I believe we are now under attack again. My husband has become bitter and very angry. My oldest son is engaged to a young lady who is a deceiver and hates my husband. She is purposefully driving a wedge between them. And they were very close. My son is completely fooled. This makes my husband even more angry and bitter. Our marriage is now suffering where once we were extremely close and now I feel us pulling apart everyday. I know the devil is meddling. This morning my husband awoke with 3 long scratches down the back of his leg! My gut is telling me this is bad but my logical side is trying to think of another reason. We have suffered a demonic attack before and it feels like the same oppression. Very worried.

      I have had weird bruises and scratches too, like hand marks and this is when I am I single lol. I am an athlete and always catch my fall and I hardly ever sick but I know I see marks on my body. I just recently felt a man in my bed just holding me tight, and didn't want to let go and said I hope this is a dream but I wasn't scared and his hands were kind of small, it felt somewhat kind but I woke up an he disappeared. I think this happened to me once when I was in highschool and I called my love in my the middle of the night scared and of course he thought I was crazy lol. I don't think these are guardian angels, perhaps. I don't want it there anymore. I am sick of these weird bruises or marks.

      I am religious and I believe in god and Jesus Christ but I've found strange cuts all over my body since the last 3 days. At first I found 3 on the right of my stomach area just a bit above my right leg, I saw 3 on the side of my face and 2 in different parts of my right leg. All the scratches on the first day were on the right side of my body. My parents just told me it was my dogs since they sometimes sleep on my bed. The second day I found another on my face but it wasn't as much visible but you could feel it very much. That was the only one the second day but right now as writing this I just got a mark on my left hand and arm it wasn't there a minute ago and I'm scared. The most mark looks like a purple line but it hurts as I touch it and it's like a dent and like I had a deep cut there and I got surgery or something, that's what it's like. Right under that there's a long red scratch that's getting all rash like and now is like a long cut. I'm getting really concerned and at first I thought I've been sleepwalking and hurting myself but I don't think that's something that could happen. I really want to like record my sleep and see what happens but I'm afraid if I do and there's some strange monster type thing or something I'll be to paranoid to sleep again. ive checked my back and there's nothing there and I don't know what's happening. Everyone thinks it's my dogs or I'm doing it myself but there scratches are to the point where I'm almost bleeding. I'm not sure they could be the work of demons but I will go to church more and do the most I can to be with God so they'll go away and if they don't then they might not be from demons. If anyone else has anything about this that could help me please say it.

      Hi Guys

      Same is the case with me Unexplained scratch marks two or three lines it's been 6 years I am living with this unexplained scratches 5 to 6 times a month.

      I also consulted Doctor, skin specialist and the only answer I got is this is a result of some food allergy which I need to detect and avoid.

      I have video the occurrence of scratches many a time , there is a slight abnormal burning sensation and then the scratches start.

      It happens anywhere any time of the day.

      I personally feel it's not something demonic or evil. it's our bodies excess spiritual energy which we all need to tap and channelise. The excess spiritual energy is God's gift to us.

      Recently I have been noticing bruises and scratches. I have eczema and usually scratch myself at night but this is too bizarre. One morning I woke up with a bruise on my inner left thigh that was in the shape of a hand and multiple small bruises on my body. I am clumsy but there were so many that were in places I have never bumped into. As well as this morning I woke up and saw 2 long scratches going up my left arm onto my veins and up to my bicep. Now there is one final scratch that I just identified while using the restroom. It is in the shape of an "M" on my inner right thigh. I have a feeling I know what this is from.
